Back To School Nails! #glamnailschallengeaug

Hello everyone!

The next theme for the Glam Nails Challenge is 'Back To School'. Doing the chalkboard/aztec nails yesterday reminded me how much I love the look of matte nails, so I decided to use the same polishes to create this design.

Chalkboard/Aztec Nails! #glamnailschallengeaug

Hello everyone!

As I'm still trying to catch up on the nail art challenges I'm taking part in this month, I decided to combine the next 2 themes of the Glam Nails Challenge, 'Chalkboard' and 'Aztec' and created an aztec pattern on a chalkboard! I'm so pleased with how this design turned out. I freehanded everything using nail art pens and it was surprisingly easy to do!

The next prompt for the Glam Nails Challenge is 'Vinyls'. I bought some nail vinyls a while ago and this was the perfect opportunity to try them out!

Pearl Nails! #WNAC2016

Hello everyone!

I'm running a bit behind with the nail art challenges I'm taking part in this month. The next theme for the Weekly Nail Art Challenge is 'Pearl'. I struggled with this theme because I had no idea how to create this effect on my nails. I don't have any pearl nail art decorations or any white pearlescent polish, but after a quick google search I found that you can get pearls in a range of colours such as purple, green and orange. This gave me the idea to use some of my duochrome polishes from the Barry M Aquarium collection for this design. After searching through my nail polish collection, I also found Rimmel Black Pearl which looks just like it's name suggests.

Rainbow SpongeBob Nails + Tutorial!

Hello everyone!

Today's nails remind me of those flower clouds that are in SpongeBob Squarepants. I've done this design before using the same stamping plate but I decided to do a rainbow gradient and added a bit of sparkle to this design. Plus there's a video tutorial of this nail art up on my YouTube channel now :)

Panda Nails! #glamnailschallengeaug

Hello everyone!

Today's nails are for the Glam Nails Challenge and the prompt was 'panda'. I love how they've turned out (even though the bamboo ended up looking like a bunch of leaves!) and it's a lovely bright, summery design!

Marble Nails! #WNAC2016

Hello everyone!

The next prompt for the Weekly Nail Art Challenge is 'Marble'. I love how these marble nails have turned out and they were much easier to do than I first thought!

Butterfly Nails! #glamnailschallengeaug

Hello everyone!

I've always wanted to try out butterfly nails, so when I saw the next prompt for the Glam Nails Challenge was 'butterflies', I was so happy! A lot of people have done this butterfly design and I wanted to do it with a duochrome polish as I feel like it made the design come to life!

Purple Nails! #glamnailschallengeaug

Hello everyone!

The next theme for the Glam Nails Challenge is purple and I thought I would do a leopard print design. Technically, I was supposed to post this design yesterday as the theme was for the 7th August - oops! I'm usually a lot further behind when I do challenges so 1 day isn't too bad!

The first prompt of the Weekly Nail Art Challenge is Opal and this is the design I did!

Watermelon Nails and Nail Art Challenges!

Hello everyone!

This month I'll be taking part in 3 Instagram nail art challenges: The Weekly Nail Art Challenge, The Glam Nails Challenge and The ClaireStelle8 summer challenge. As you probably know I usually post about 2 designs a month so to be posting 13 or more designs is going to be extremely challenging for me, but I'm feeling excited about it! The ClaireStelle8 challenge just involves posting any summer designs you do this month so it's a bit easier than the others!

So to start off, I'll be showing you what I did for the first theme of the Glam Nails Challenge which is watermelon. I did a classic ruffian watermelon design that a lot of other bloggers have done before. It's so cute and summery!
